The case was initially reported at the Badagry Divisional Police and is now being investigated at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Yaba, Lagos.
According to Akodogbo, “we have been lovers for more than two years, but we had to end the relationship because of her health condition. She is hypertensive.
“But we met during the carnival in Badagry and we discussed. We spent time together and had a lot of fun together at the carnival.
“Like school children, the old flame was rekindled and we decided to continue the affair. She agreed to spend the night at my place.
“By the time I woke up in the morning, I tried to wake her up, but she did not move; her body had already become lifeless and stiff. I was alarmed and alerted my neighbours.
“They said this was beyond them and that the police needs to be involved. That was how the police was contracted. I did not kill her.”
